  • The natural science museum in Las Palmas is worth a visit if you are into brain puzzles, optical illusions, physics and math. It’s a very active museum with a lot of stuff to try out for yourself. Some installations could use a polish but most of them are fine and working. The entrance fee is very low (6€ adult 3€student) so I guess there on a thought budget. The nature part is missing out a bit, just a few bad kept skeletons but the nature 3D movie (English/Spanish) was actually really cool! Very friendly stuff!
  • Great museum for kids with loads of hands on experiments and equipment, especially upstairs. There were lots of school groups when we went and it was a bit hard occasionally to explain to our daughter why she couldn't just join in... But overall very good! Loved the machine in the lobby area too... Strangely mesmerising!
  • It’s a fantastic museum for family with young kids and teenagers. They have a wide range of science experiments and puzzles. The fighters jet is awesome. The robot is interactive and the Xbox games really engaging. They even have virtual reality for simulating an situation when you are on a plank of wood on a high-rise building. We had a great time there. They allow you to go out of the museum and go back in on the same day. We went out for lunch and went back in to see more demonstrations. It’s right beside the kids play area too.
  • One of the must to see places, especially if you bring your kids with you. A lot of interesting expositions, presentations, tools to play and discover great world of knowledge. It was a very nice surprise to find the place, which is similar to what we have seen in Central Europe. Special presentations are only in Spanish but it is what you would normally expect. Magic show is more about entertaining audience by talking and serving jokes than magic tricks but besides this the whole experience is very good.
  • Fantastic museum! Lots of interactive stuff that will entertain any children from small right up through. We went twice two years ago and will likely go twice this time as there is just so much to see and do here from The 3D cinema to the planetarium, the gyroscope and avatar game. The robocoaster is great fun and our son loves the fighter jet and the two flight simulation programs. The virtual reality was surprisingly immersive and challenging for all of us! Highly recommend!
